I just learned that Virginia Avery died on Thursday. She would have been 100 years old on September 23. I loved her. She was a straight shooter and an amazing person. She is probably known best for her wearable arts but she made great quilts too. Her clothing was never boring. Her husband died suddenly and unexpectedly leaving her with four children to raise. She lost a son too. Yet she was always upbeat and lived life fully with lots of gusto. Whenever I would see her, she always took the time to catch up. I'll always remember her energy and her kindness. Jinny, you will be missed!
